    EDIT: i lied i order through new egg, the company is shipping me new resistor packs first thing tomorrow.

    I'll keep you posted
    It may be new lights as I don't think the gray box can be removed(haven't tried it)

    I hope you can get them to working I know you love the look that's why I went with them with my truck as they go with my trucks look

    Re: LED Rear lights

    so i replaced all my fuses today and gave it another go with them just to see where i was at. I wanted some back up fuses before i started playing. Left turn/Right turn work. Brake lamp illuminates, reverse still works, no constant illumination. thinking its not the resistor packs anymore. i'll test more tomorrow. work starts soon.


    sosatyme72 - Spec-D or CG seem to be the brand names that keep popping up as far as i can see. CarID has them and they can be found from various retailers no Newegg. you can also find them on ebay as well. they seem to run about the same everywhere just make sure the place is an authorized retailer that way if you have issues with the product it can be resolved.


    Edit - so I checked again on my break at work and found 2 more blown fuses under the hood. Replaced them and were at 100% functionality. Can't figure out why it blew everything out the first time. Its hooked up just as it was at first but now all good. What ever, it works and looks great!!

    I would check the junction plate under the right rear fender as it has the wiring for the whole rear of the trucks lighting routed through it

    Well I have a new set of them being sent to me so I can replace the old ones from the company. I'll most likely get them after my vaca but the cars sitting for the duration so it won't affect anything

    TRUST ME, get a TRIDON LM487 light module for your blinkers and replace the stock one and you won't have any problems with your LED blinkers! I used the TRIDON light module and you don't have to splice into your factory wires or use stupid resistors. No I do not work for TRIDON, I like to pass on info on products I use that work! Take down the plastic piece under the steering wheel (size 7 socket) find the light module which can be hard to pull out. Got mine out by gently prying it out with a screw driver put in new module and BAM, your done! The TRIDON will be a little louder when your blinker is blinking but it helps you not forget to turn it off. Good luck! Enjoy...

    The taillights the op is talking about are not led BULBS but full blown tail lights made to plug and play with the factory equipment I know as I have a set in my truck
    There are no mods needed or add ons required for them to work he just happened to get a defective set

    Eagle Eye sells the tail light that is the same as factory but with Led bulbs. Had them for 2 years and no problems.
